Do you have a plan for what to do when your parachute doesn’t open?

Well, if you do not, pay attention. Here is a 6 step checklist for what to do:

  1. Signal your Buddy.
  2. Get close with your Buddy.
  3. Link your arms through his/her straps.
  4. Open his/her chute.
  5. Let your Buddy steer the chute.
  6. Suggest that he/she look for an extra soft place to land (water).

There now. Don’t you feel safer?

You say you do not parachute jump? So what good it this?

Well, you must see that this is really good advice that can be applied to many situations. Not just parachute jumping. Continued at Riskviews

I like this allegory.

It’s all good in theory, but in practice you're not going to be able to signal to your buddies that you're having a problem, because they'll be tracking away from you and deploying their own parachutes. Also if you could do that in time, you both would be going significantly faster than usual;
Basically, what you should do if your parachute doesn't work right is that you pull one handle to cut it away, and another handle to open your reserve parachute (which regulations require you to have).
